Thread Starter 

So I am preparing to smoke my first ribs tomorrow...figured I'd try to make a rub.


I used one and a half cups of white sugar...although the popular vote seems brown?


2 Tsp Garlic Powder

2 Tsp of Regular Salt

2 Tsp of Paprika

2 Tsp of Chili Powder

1 Tsp of Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp of Cumin

1/2 Tsp of Curry Powder

1/2 Tsp of Oregano

1/2 Tsp of Cayenne


Got most of the ingredient ideas from a pervious post on here...hope it turns out!

Scratch that! I ended up abandoing the rub...


If I'm going to smoke for 6 hours...it had better be right.


I ended up searching for a Kansas City Rub and Sauce recipe...




One-quarter cup brown sugar
One-quarter cup sweet paprika
Two teaspoons ground black pepper
Two teaspoons chili powder
Two teaspoons onion powder
One teaspoon garlic powder
One teaspoon mustard powder
One-half teaspoon powdered cayenne



1-1/2 cups of water 

1/2 cup of your favorite ketchup

1/3 cup white vinegar

1/4 cup tomato paste

1/4 cup molasses

2 tablespoons of white sugar

1 teaspoon of Liquid Smoke flavoring

1/2 teaspoon of onion powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
